27 ¶ And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.
27 Verse 27. Son of David] This was the same as if they had
called him Messiah. Two things here are worthy of remark: 1st.
That it was a generally received opinion at this time in Judea,
that the Messiah should be son of David. (Joh 7:42.) 2dly. That
Jesus Christ was generally and incontestably acknowledged as
coming from this stock. Mt 12:23.
Have mercy on us.] That man has already a measure of heavenly
light who knows that he has no merit; that his cry should be a cry
for mercy; that he must be fervent, and that in praying he must
follow Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, the son of David,
expected from heaven.
